China Glaze Crystal Ball over You Move Me

When I was going to visit family, I thought the brown tone looked weird with my gray shirt, so I grabbed my trusty Crystal Ball and layered it on top.

Whenever something looks a little weird, I put Crystal Ball on it, and it becomes amazing! haha

China Glaze Crystal Ball over Nubar Avant Garde

Instead of putting a clear coat on top of yesterday’s Avant Garde, I found my favorite jelly with holo glitter to put over it instead… Crystal Ball!

I love putting it over other dark colors, it just gives it a raspberry tint with the sparkly holo particles. 🙂

I am so excited because I just ordered polishes from the China Glaze Metro Collection finally! I got Street Chic, Brownstone, Midtown Magic, Concrete Catwalk, Urban Night, and Loft-y Ambitions.

Then BB Couture has new Eye Candy polishes out and I caved and got Scorching Strawberry and Playboy from Overall Beauty‘s shop.

From Zoya’s Smoke & Mirrors, I got Petra, Neeka and Jem!

Wow, whatever extra money I got from my trip just went bye bye that fast. I linked to where to buy them if you want some too. 🙂

When the OPI Touring Collection is out online (or if it already is, let me know where!) I’m going to get Color to Diner For, My Address is Hollywood, and then I have to get French Quarter for your Thoughts because of the name, I just have to! (I think I want the Hollywood one, but I hear it is the same as Essie Your Hut or Mine but not as easy to apply, so maybe that one’s out?)

China Glaze – Crystal Ball, Sugar Plums, and Riveter Rouge

I wanted to compare my burgundy w glitter dust China Glaze polishes.

Left to right: Crystal Ball, Sugar Plums, Riveter Rouge

Crystal Ball is a little more sheer than Sugar Plums, both have holo glitter dust
Riveter Rouge has a gold glitter dust

All of them are so amazing, I just love all of them. 🙂

China Glaze – Mahoganie

This is the coolest, isn’t it?

Its a brown base with tons of holographic multi-colored glitter inside! I was really excited to get this in a swap because I never really see polishes like this with a brown base. If you know of anymore, let me know in the comments! 🙂

There are fine micro holographic glitter particles with larger ones mixed in. I think it is so unique.

When I had it on, I kept thinking that it was a little similar to Crystal Ball, since that had holo glitter too, but just had a burgundy berry base instead of brown.

I was wrong though! Look at how much more glitter is in Mahoganie, compared to Crystal Ball!

I kept saying “Wow!” the whole time I was wearing it!

All of the glitter did make it feel a little gritty, so I don’t think the base is jelly-ish enough to hold the glitter underneath the surface. A top coat fixes that though, and I always have a top coat on anyway.
